History of BMW

Karl Rapp and Gustav Otto started the BMW company in 1916 with the merger of the Flugmaschinenfabrik Gustav Otto company and the Bayerische Flugzeug-Werke AG (BFW). In the meantime, the Rapp Motorenwerke company became Bayerische Motoren Werke GmbH as a public limited company. Since the founding of BFW on March 7, 1916, the company moved on to develop the BMW emblem, which has the state colors of Bavaria, in 1917. The emblem is now widely recognized as the BMW brand, especially in advertising, and it had made its first appearance in the company advertising at the end of the 1920s.

History of the Models from BMW

The first model in 1923 for the BMW brand was the BMW R 32, and it was a motorcycle. The first BMW car was the BMW 501, which was a luxury car with a six-cylinder engine introduced in 1952. The BMW Z1 Roadster was introduced by BMW Technik GmbH in 1988. BMW brand debuted its concept for a Sports Activity Vehicle, the BMW X5, in 1999. In 20004, the BMW 1 Series came to be with the benefits of a compact vehicle. In 2013, the BMW company released the BMW i3, an all-electric series. This model is entirely emission-free but still has a great driving experience for its agility.
